Fantasy Chess Update: Round Seven Print E-mail
By Arun Sharma   
May 15, 2009
With one of the biggest matchups of the Fantasy Chess competition, Onischuk vs Shulman, finally having a switch in the leader, the Fantasy Standings finally experienced a reasonable shake-up.  Fortunately, today's leader and winner of the daily book prize, Jonathan Ingellis, definitely has earned his way, having been in the Top Five the last two days, and finally climbing to the top spot. Remember you can check your own ranking at http://uschess.org/fc_2009/

The overall prizes include a Monroi PCM , a signed book by Kasparov, a board signed by all the participants of the 2009 U.S. Championship and Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis cufflinks. You must be a USCF member to win the overall prizes, but anyone can win the daily prizes.

These are the Top Fifteen Entrants.
